Gull Bay chief pledges financial accountability

Over the weekend, Gull Bay First Nation elected Wilfred King as chief, returning him to the position he held for eight years up to 2010.

King says when he left, the community was in decent financial shape.

But today, just before he and his newly-elected council held their first meeting, they went to the bank.

They found there's not much there to work with and King says the previous chief and council have just laid off community staff.

The CBC's Nicole Ireland spoke to him about these issues after he called a news conference this afternoon.

CBC tried to reach the previous chief Miles Nowegejick today, but was unable to.
